SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation Fights Dragon Fire

Understanding how the flow of liquids or gases influences your design’s performance can be the difference between bringing a hot product to market and creating an unmitigated dumpster fire. The best way to stop a fire before it starts is by understanding computational fluid dynamics (CFD).

When you need to understand how liquids and gases will flow through your design, you do not need to export information from SOLIDWORKS or get assistance from an expert. Your 3D CAD data that you created in SOLIDWORKS is the foundation and starting point for CFD analysis. SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation uses CFD to enable engineers and designers to quickly and efficiently simulate fluid flow and heat transfer – all directly inside of SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD.

And that brings us to the topic of dragons. Yes, dragons.

SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation can inform you about HVAC and electronics cooling, but it can also help warrior-engineer Johnny Snow keep dragons from roasting his soldiers alive – as you’ll see in the below trailer.

WATCH THE FULL VIDEO to see how Johnny Snow develops a dragonfire-proof shield with SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation, and learn how you can use CFD insights to make technical decisions through a concurrent engineering approach.
